- Legal proceedings were started against Microsoft in the early 1990s, looking into possible anti-trust violations by the Redmond-based software giant. This culminated in Justice Jackson ordering Microsoft to be broken into two, in 2000. An appeals court judgement overruled Justice Jackson's verdict, but upheld the view that Microsoft had indeed used its monopoly position to further its own interests and to kill competition. By the end of the 1990s, Microsoft's legal woes had taken on a transatlantic dimension, with the European Commission also investigating alleged monopolistic practices by Microsoft. The EC verdict, in March 2004 asked Microsoft to break up Windows- Microsoft's operating system- so as not to include software add-ons. The verdict is still up for appeal.
